acknowledged having with the woman. where does the fbi investigation stand right now? >> in terms of general petraeus, it's been winding down. it was winding down the first week it went public in november. there was no evidence found he had committed a crime, and no indication he had improperly sent classified material out or in any way breached national security. >> was it winding down -- if it was winding down, why did this explode publicly? do you have a good handle on why it became such a sordid sex scandal, if you will? >> any time an investigation concludes, if it's not being prosecuted or it's just being finished, these type of things start to get out. >> the fbi hopes since it was winding down, there weren't serious criminal allegations if you will or violations of national security, they would have liked to have kept this quiet. >> they would have kept it quiet until such time as the case is over and make whatever notifications, but the no notifications of the white house would be determined by the attorney general, and the attorney general could say at this point make the notificat
it curious that it was the fbi that has been leading this investigation on him and what he knew. and it raises concerns that the cia and fbi are at it again or at war again. we think? >> well, i have observed the privilege of knowing general petraeus for nearly a decade. i think he's a great man. so i have the feeling that he had done things for the country in iraq and afghanistan. neil: on all that, sir. the cia and the fbi -- [talking over each other] >> [inaudible] it can be that the criteria of a particular investigation, i don't wt to question the motives of the fbi. i am sure that they -- they have gone by the instructions of which they operate. neil: when you are under president nixon, even when the administrations were competing, they thought that was okay. they thought they were doing better for the country. >> the fbi did it to prove the job. they did the internal pursuit of espionage in this country. they operated abroad. sometimes these lines might cros. i did not come across it during the watergate period. neil: we are not after that. this is a scandal that grows in
and shirtless fbi agent in the petraeus scandal have in common? just wait. we'll show you more. newsroom starts now. i piercing sound of an air raid station. it is a chilling sound, becoming all too familiar as rockets continue to fill the air over israel and gaza and a planned cease fire, visit to gaza by egypt's prime minister may not be holding up. senior international correspondent sarah sidner is in the middle of it all. she has more for you from gaza city. >> reporter: what is happening on both sides of the gaza/israel border looks and feels like war to anyone who has to live with it, no matter what the governments on either side have declared. this is a small taste of what it fe felt like in gauza over a 24-hor period. >> that is exactly -- all right. i'm going to move out of the way and let you get a look here. i'm going to let you get a lock at what is going on. i can see the black smoke. it's difficult to capture on camera. you saw that flash. this is what we have been dealing with all day. we've also been dealing with -- i'm sorry, the power has just gone out. we have been dealing wi
in afghanistan. meanwhile the fbi agent frederick humphries who launched the investigation of emails is being investigated by the fbi for his role in the case. specifically why he took concerns about this case to republican members of congress. house and senate panels are expected to meet again today with fbi and cia officials. they want to know whether national security was jeopardized and why congress didn't know about the investigation sooner. during a news conference on wednesday president obama praised david petraeus. >> general petraeus had an extraordinary career. he served this country with great distinction in iraq, in afghanistan and as head of the cia. by his own assessment he did not meet the standards that he felt were necessary as the director of the cia with respect to this personal matter that he's now dealing with, with his family and with his wife. and it's on that basis that he tendered his resignation and i accepted it. >> the house panel is looking into the government's handling of the deadly september attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. tomorrow they will hear from da
follow the facts. we do not share outside the justice department, outside the fbi the facts of ongoing investigations. we made the determination as we were going through the matter that there was not a threat to national security. >> let's jump right in and bring in our friday morning political power panel. we have jackie kucinich political reporter for "usa today", democratic strategist blake zeb and msnbc contributor robert trainum. great to have you all here. we just heard from congressman king earlier today saying the general was asked right off the top whether the affair had an impact on his testimony. he said no. they moved on. but are all indications then that the affair is now a side note and lawmakers are truly focused on what took place in benghazi and the intelligence they have now? >> this very minute, yeah. i think that's the case. will that remain the focus? i don't know. because there's a lot of questions still out there about petraeus and his relationship with his biographer as well as joe kelly in tampa. and general allen. i mean, there are a lot of moving parts here.
at the present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation ongoing and that will give us the definitive word on what transpired. putting together the best information we have today, the current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hoyers before in cairo. a copycat attack which were prompted of course by the video. >> senator, you said that two days before that, director petraeus said it was terrorism. why didn't ambassador rice call it terrorism two days later? >> because she could speak publicly only on unclassified speaking points. i have some concern with those speaking points. but let me correct one thing. >> right. but what are the concerns and why speak at all? in other words, why was there a reference to it being a terrorist attack taken out of the public talking points? >> that is something that we're going to find out. but it was. that's the point. now, with the allegation that the white house changed those talking points, that is false. there is only one thing that was changed, and i've checked into
" in the investigation. back on october 27, out of the blue, he got an alarching phone call from an fbi employee about the general's extra-marital affair. we talked about the sex scandal, the benghazi and the fiscal cliff. nice to see you. >> great to be with you. >> greta: all right. this benghazi mess, fora lack of a better word, would you be in favor of a select committee instead of having several committees trying to investigate the house and the senate, having a streamlined, one select committee, investigate and get to the bottom of this? >> i know that -- i have met with our speaker and we are talking about it. i am for what is best, in terms of making sure the american people got the bottom line on what has happened. it's so frustrating about the benghazi situation is that the administration's story has just changed almost daily. and when you think about it, take a step back, you know, our ambassador died, others died here. this is so beyond politics, this is about our national security. this is about life and death of americans, civil servants, this is about the safety and security of our mili
: fox news confirmed a friend of the petraeus famly, jill kelly, contacted the fbi said she got threatening e-mails from anonymous e-mail account, that e-mail, those anonymous e-mails were discovered to be linked to broadwell, the mistress of general petraeus. that kicked of the investigation into high gear over the summer. lawmakers and the white house apparently did not know anything about it. the white house says it didn't learn about any of this until just last week, right after election day and just as controversy continued to grow over the benghazi terror attack. kelly wright live in washington with more for us now. >> reporter: jenna, good morning to you. just as you said this is something very shocking to washington as well as mysterious. fox news learned fbi investigators confronted now former cia director david petraeus about his former relationship paula broadwell. the fbi discovered the affair months ago after jill kelly, a petra friend went to the fbi began receiving threatening e-mails from another woman. she was concerned someone was blackmailing petraeus. some qu
to testify tomorrow. are you concerned over the way the fbi handled the situation so far? specifically when you look at this? do you think the president should have been told about the investigation earlier? >> well, i'm on homeland security and my first priority is to ensure the national security of this nation but as well i want to not have us forget that we lost four valiant americans and we must continue to mourn them. it must be a sad time for their family. but i believe in process. and i do believe there is a time when the president of the united states should be notified. however, the fbi proceeds in investigations all the times. we should have some standards as to whether or not the fbi was in order in looking at what i consider may have been private matters. if it had to do with national security or they thought a crime was in play and they had the right to do so, i don't think we have the necessary standards. it looks like we don't have a test or at least it seems that we as congresspersons are concerned, when is the test when the president should be notified? the key question tod
. the f.b.i. is already concluded that the former director was not the source of the classified information found on her computer. however, if anything improper is found during the course of the c.i.a. investigation, it will be dealt with accordingly, shep. >> shep: what more do we know about the closed door hearing today? >> well, the classified hearings were closed to the public and they lasted several hours with some democrats saying after that the sessions were constructive, but puts to rest reports, including comments by the former c.i.a. director's biographer that, the the attack was an effort to free prisoners held. >> i have no information that any of that occurred whatsoever. that there were people being held. >> fox news has also told there were heated exchanges over the so-called benghazi talking points that suggested the attack was a demonstration that spun out of control. fox news has told neither the director of national intelligence, james clapper, nor mike morell, knew who finalized the talking points and they could not explain why the talking points minimized th
surfaced that you -- that somehow you got information and you passed it on to the fbi director. what happened? >> well, you know, i was contacted by an individual in the fbi who i have never met, i didn't know. he offered information to me that gave me pause and a cause for alarm. i had no way to corroborate the information. and certainly, the information to me... gave rise to the possibility that there was a national security issues that perhaps our cia director was vulnerable. but i couldn't corroborate or substantiate the information that was given to me. we were about 10 days or a few weeks out before the election. and i didn't want to politicize it, i wanted to make sure that national security wasn't at risk. so i turned to the person and the entity that i felt best equipped to deal with that information, to get to the bottom of it. and this was the fbi director and his office, that we know has an obligation to make sure that our national security is the priority. and the fbi's also obligated to apprise congress if there is a need for or an ongoing investigation or if there is a
house happen this week if it was going on fors? i thinklet fbi has a lot of questions to answer. >> a lot of people have serious doubts and misgivings about the administration's contention that the president learned after the election about the sex scandal that destroid general petraeus's career. it is congressman chaffetz out of utah. thank you for being here. why does it stick in your craw that eric holder told the president after the election was over. >> general petraeus is it the head of the cia. if there is it an investigation and the question of what he's doing in his personal life, i think that should come to the attention . president of the united states. he may choose not to do anything. but leave him in the dark is unexcusible. >> do you believe that there is it some misrepresentation going on? >> i am worry about somewhere between the fbi and department. justice. someone didn't take it to the president of the united states. and when you are the period of the central intelligence agency. that is vital something that may be compromisinglet person. i don't want to the e
